Abstract:
Background: Obesity is increasing in adults in the UK. In 1980 6% of men and 8% of women in England were obese, by 2000 these figures were 21% for both men and women. Obesity is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cancer and osteoarthritis. In 1998 the UK National Audit Office estimated that obesity cost the NHS in England £480 million. This is a systematic review of the long-term effects of obesity treatments, not only on body weight, but also on risk factors for disease, and most importantly health.
